sterling example of the biscuits at their best...
even without brownstein this is possibly one of the greatest shows the biscuits ever played. just listen to the whole dyslexic little shimmy pseudo-sandwich and the following pygmy twylyte>eulogy, it is mind-blowing... and let's not forget the distinctly rare loch ness monster and a vicious hot air balloon. my brain literally, undulates and fasciculates with pure joy when i listen to this show. here are two standout moments for the impatient ones;
- track 7 (littly shimmy) [from approx' 11 minutes in] up to [approx' the first 9 minutes] of track 8 (basis).
- track 11 (pygmy twylyte) [from approx' 10 minutes in] up to track 12 (eulogy).
the peaks are so high all throughout this show, but those two time periods are my favourite examples. i would rate the recording at a little higher than 3 stars, but the complexity and harmony of the band's instrumentation more than makes up for any inconsistencies in the sound quality. definitely snag this one if you have the time.

Great atmosheric improv.
I really like this era, it seems very trancendental. Barber played better in this era and was more creative in general. The drums are breaking new ground and the bass is distictly different than brownie's. There is an epic feel and the sets are constructed well. It to me is an instant classic. And the sound seems to improve over the night, or maybe I am getting more used to it?
